    Lieberman was strong on labor and environmental issues, and he advocated for the insurance and defense industries in his home state much in the way that Bernie Sanders advocates for dairy farmers. Yes, he was/is a hawk, but so is Hillary Clinton. Yes, he was/is an outspoken supporter of Israel, but so is Alan Grayson.

    Cantor, OTOH, is interested in Cantor.

      while it is true Lieberman wasn't nearly as bad as Cantor, he was a real shondah. He was much more of a hawk than Hillary, and he wasn't all that great domestically -- for instance, he threatened to filibuster the ACA if it included a public option.

      It is a very good thing that he is no longer in public office.
